Karachi Kings' Chris Gayle, Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene have refused to travel to Lahore for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final despite being made lucrative financial offers by the league organisers.

As many as 50 cricketers expressed their desire to partake in the title-deciding match after the PSL organisers, following a high-level meeting, decided to go ahead and hold the match in Lahore, per Express News

However, absent from the list was the star trio of Gayle, Sangakkara and Jayawardene, who have refused to travel to Pakistan, citing the country's volatile security conditions.
